Food was very average. We were brought the wrong main, not asked if we wanted a desert, then the desert was taken to the wrong table. Ordered a coffee and they brought the wrong one. Very slow service. As we left our waiter was sitting at a table drinking a beer. Underwhelming.

Very nice dîner at la petite ferme, with the special French winter dish which is la raclette.
Nice ambiance with the music group.
I Will be back soon. Thank you to the waiter as well. Really professional

As a French living in London I was delighted to find proper raclette! My British friends absolutely loved the experience too!

My third time here. First two were good but this one left us feeling unsatisfied.
There were two waiters at the restaurant.
The younger one is very nice but the older man was rude, answered with simple "yes" and "no", did not help us with the menu choice. We asked if there was any rose wine - the answer was just a "no", the man didn't even look at us while answering and quickly rushed somewhere else.
Weirdly enough fondue does not come with croutons and it is just baked cheese in the original wooden package, not in a fondue pot.
Snails are good and fairly priced, but a bit much on the salty side.

Other reviews suggested the service wouldn't be great, but while it wasn't the fastest I found the staff were pleasant and we weren't hurried from our table so lingered a long time enjoying our wine. Very rich dishes, and while the truffle mac and cheese was sadly not as steeped in truffle as I'd hoped I had a lovely creamy chicken dish and was able to take home what I couldn't finish! Best on a weekday as Farringdon is pretty dead at the weekend.

It’s our 4th visit to the restaurant. We always have the Market menu but was disappointed that on this occasion there was only one choice of starter, Quinoa with watermelon and avocado. Could hardly see the avocado and the watermelon was very sparse. The main courses were delicious though.

The restaurant was nearly empty yet the waiter never came around to ask even if we wanted water to begin with, then we had to tell him that we are ready to order after he took another table’s order who came after us. He has a bad attitude, does not smile, takes his time. He is almost rude. Shame, pretty restaurant but unfriendly staff. Food is ok no more.

One of the worst meals I had in London. The place itself is lovely, nicely decorated and nice ambience. However staff was not attentive and rude. My food was completely cold ... like ice cold. It was my partners birthday so I didn’t say something but again I also raised that to staff and asked for a nice table because of the occasion and they sat us to the last table next to where they would get their cutlery from. Not a good experience and spend a lot of money for a disappointing evening there.

The service very slow even when we were the only customers for the early dinner. The wine was very good but unfortunately the food was very mediocre. May be the place is more suitable for a group dinner, they have a few large tables perfect for a friends night out. Overall I wasn't impressed and wouldn't go back.

I’m French, I’m picky, and I loved it. I’d recommend the Chef’s menu, probably the most affordable 5 course meal I’ve seen in London. Good wines, good cocktails.

A wonderful restaurant! Very professional, welcoming and helpful service. Exquisite food. We visited on a weeknight with our two children who loved the menu. A very high standard of dining, and the evening made all the more enjoyable by the string jazz quartet who made the ambience exceptional. I absolutely recommend La Ferme to anyone who appreciates fine French cuisine.

Very pleasant evening meal. We chose the venue for its closeness to Farringdon as well as its very French appeal. There were three menu options. We chose the Le Marche - very fresh ingredients with 3 courses. Flavours were excellent, if the portions were a little small. Ambience was welcoming and relaxed - we didn’t feel at all hurried. Wine tasting party next to us was a little lively but not too disruptive.

The menu du jour was good value, and there wasn't anything on it that I wouldn't recommend. Both pudding and cheese are well worth having. Nice quiet place for a chat, Pleasant ambience, about five minutes walk from Faringdon station.

We enjoyed the atmosphere, very pretty restaurant. The food was good but not extraordinary. Typical French food with a novel twist, tasty but nothing exceptional. £20 for a three-course meal is good value. The restaurant itself was quite noisy, super warm (too warm) inside and the service was very slow. We waited a lot for our food which made the experience a bit less enjoyable for us.

La Ferme is a small authentic French restaurant. The vibe was charming. The food was excellent albeit the choice from the set menu was by very limited which we knew in advance and which presumably helps to keep the price such good value . I will just say that my portion of sea bass was pretty small. It wasnt an issue for me as I am not a big eater, but anyone with an appetite might have been disappointed. But overall we really enjoyed our lunch and would go back if in the Farringdon area.
